St Andrews Erlang Factory Lite 2012

15 Jun 2012

The 2012 Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP 2012) and associated events were  held at St Andrews University on June 11-15, 2012. There was a strong Erlang presence at TFP 2012, with a number of exciting co-located events including Erlang tutorials, workshop dedicated to the EU Framework 7 ParaPhrase and Release projects, and a St Andrews Erlang Factory Lite!

Attendees of the Factory Lite came to find out how more firms are using Erlang/OTP to solve previously intractable problems. It provided a chance to learn, socialise and network with some fantastic names.

TFP 2012 and was sponsored by Erlang Solutions Ltd, and the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA).

Trends in Fuctional Programming 2012

The symposium is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming, taking a broad view of current and future trends in the area of functional programming. It aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results, and other contributions (see below), described in draft papers submitted prior to the symposium. A formal post-symposium refereeing process then selects a subset of the articles presented at the symposium and submitted for formal publication, as a Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science volume, as they were for the TFP 2010 selected papers.
